Pontoon is in a slip and I don't have a trailer. Have a high pressure water spray at the slip. Since it's sitting in water, I need an environmentally safe soap for the carpets and seats. Any recommendations??

I clean mine with Simple Green using no water mix and a brush on seats. Haven't tried it on carpet.

Thanks retd....have heard good things about Simple Green and it can be used on carpets as far as I can tell. Reviews say it is much better on seats. Affordable too.

Simple Green is a surfactant, meaning it works to release the tension (stickiness) between your surface and the contaminant on it. It floats loose, basically. This action is why good results are achieved if you can flush away the surfactant and the lifted debris with a stream of water once the tension has been broken. So...be sure to use lots of water and flush away the grime once the surfactant breaks it loose. Otherwise, it will settle and stick again once everything dries out.

Thanks Flippinout...I will have a high pressure jet sprayer to use after I've let the carpet and seats soak up the Simple Green and debris.
